Serious forum problem

ALL OF A SUDDEN FIREFOX REFUSES TO ALLOW ACCESS TO THE FORUM.

Quote:
Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to forums.1911forum.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

forums.1911forum.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You canít add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the websiteís administrator about the problem.
Chrome bitched about it, but did let me in.

Z'up with that?

How strange, Google Chrome just blocked this site as malware, but upon trying again, no problem.

I don't know about much about HSTS but for https problems the first thing to check is your system time.

I've also had a few times lately with Chrome which would not connect and said try again later but usually after a few tries it will connect but I can tell you there is always that thought in the back of my head that someone is messing with pro gun websites.

I had it earlier today in FireFox, so I tried to switch to IE - no go, same error. So what I ended up doing is deleting my browsing history and all cache and cookies, then re-booting my laptop. Problem is now gone and FireFox is working normally. I can only assume that it was some tracking cookies that got messed up, and clearing them and re-booting the system loaded a new copy of the certificate.

ETA: I did notice shortly before the error that FireFox did an update - perhaps that stepped on the cache or cookies.

requested domain name does not match the server’s certificate?

Were we briefly hacked?
NSA needed to install a monitor??

I got the error earlier today. That is what Chrome reported that it could be a hack attack... someone spoofing the forum's certificate and trying to get our encrypted login credential.

Years ago, vBulletin forum software did have vulnerabilities and at one forum, it was hacked and user accounts taken over.

It would not surprise me that some anti-gun group could do this.

LoL!! When was the last time you updated Firefox, WW?
I've had so many problems with the latest releases I had to install Chrome
as a work around.

(I started with Netscape, so hoping Mozilla will come around)

FireFox is my default browser at this time, and like I said in my earlier post it happened with IE as well. I think it is a cache/cookies issue. Evidently even Chrome had it; it has been reported to the VB Tech Support staff to research, so we'll keep you updated as we learn more.

Firefox has been clunky lately, but beer gOOgles is STILL the electronic anti-Christ.

Hello all,

The HTTPS certificate most likely wasn't renewed on time.
Is anyone still having issues with this?
Should be working now.
